Spitzer Is Linked to Prostitution Ring - New York Times

The New York Times is reporting that New York Governor Elliot Spitzer has been caught on a wire tap confirming plans to have a prostitute meet him in Washington where he had reserved a hotel room. This reportedly occurred on February 13 of this year.

I was never impressed with Mr. Spitzer when he was the Attorney General of New York, as he always appeared to be more impressed with his press than his results. He was a self-righteous, arrogant and overly impressed with himself prosecutor, and I thought the people of the great state of New York made a huge mistake when they elected him governor.

He barged into areas that he should not have been, he tossed a potential monkey wrench into the securities regulatory scheme and in reality, did nothing to help the industry or potential investors. Even his record research settlement with Wall Street did nothing to help investors - a pittance went to investors, if it ever got distributed at all. A big piece when to the various attorneys general around the country.

I am certainly less impressed now. If this story is true, Mr. Do-gooder, Mr. White Knight, Mr. Over-the-Top, is nothing but a common John - well, not so common, since he allegedly got a prostitute to travel to Washington to meet him.

What a piece of work. And when caught, he holds a press conference and calls his conduct "an obligation to his family." I always thought that paying a prostitute was a crime, putting aside of course, your obligation to your wife to be faithful, and your obligation to your constitutants to obey the law.

Nothing but another piece of garbage politician. Nothing more.

UPDATE - His political foes are having a field day, calling for his resignation
